Business Hero Award 2022

On 15.07.22 the spectacular evening gala event for the Business Hero Award 2022 took place in Heide. The winners were invited to the presentation of the prizes and their acceptance.

It was a special pleasure and honor for the managing partner of PeRoBa Unternehmensberatung GmbH to accept the award on the stage of the event.

According to Business Hero: “The Business Hero Award honors companies that prove themselves in their nominated category as future thinkers and visionaries. Categories include Vision, Tech, Innovation Hero, Woman Power and Sustainability, among others. The evaluation is carried out by a jury of experts who evaluate the company and the submission of the companies.” [Source]

On stage, Dr. Scherb informed the entrepreneurs present about the rough corporate purpose of PeRoBa. A relevant lecture element, which Mr. Scherb regularly uses, is the involvement of the participants in the lecture process. This was also done with the Business Hero by asking all entrepreneurs whose company has a certification or will need it soon.

Almost all those present responded as a response. Based on this feedback, the question followed as to which of the managing directors present would enthusiastically take over the resulting tasks and management reviews. Now a cross-room murmur could be heard. Probably none of the managing directors would like to take on this requirement.

This example has shown that although there is a desire for certification, there is a lack of motivation to implement it.

This is one of the interfaces at which PeRoBa Unternehmensberatung GmbH can successfully start in order to improve the understanding and effectiveness of the management systems – both for the “top management” – the company leaders, as well as for the employees.

One possibility is the further development into an agile management system with concrete added value for all participants in a company, such as a meaningful dashboard system for the managing director up to a maturity level system about the effectiveness within the company. As a result, an ROI can be displayed for the management system, among other things.

We can support this by using innovative tools, such as our in-house development iVision® to carry out remote audits. The added value of such workcan also be an alternative solution in other areas, such as the upcoming Supply Chain Act, to meet legal and specific customer requirements.

After further explanatory examples, Dr. Scherb said goodbye to the stage to the applauseof the participants present. In the subsequent get-together, many interesting and exciting conversations were held and new contacts were made.

Dr. Scherb would like to thank the organizers, in particular Ms. Pabst for the successful and professional orientation as well as the friendly atmosphere.

Introducing TISAX® successfully in your company

Your customer wants you to prove that you have your TISAX® label? What does that mean, why is it necessary, and how do you tackle this in your company?

 

Information security is an important factor when it comes down to customer supplier relationships. Threats to digital infrastructure such as hacker attacks have increased strongly. TISAX® (»Trusted Information Security Assessment Exchange«) is an assessment and exchange mechanism, and it serves as evidence guaranteeing IT security standards. The ENX Association, an organization in the context of which European automotive manufacturers, subsuppliers, and associations have been partnering, is behind TISAX®.  

 

If you are working as a supplier in the automotive sector, your customers may request since 2017 that you account for having your TISAX® label pursuant to VDA-ISA (an information security assessment). VDA-ISA is a standard for supply chains in the automotive sector and was developed by the VDA, the (German) Automotive Industry Association in order to protect customer and supplier data and information.

 

TISAX® is aimed at ensuring a certain shared level and consistent requirements on information security and at being considered significant evidence thereof. Why is TISAX® so important? Subsupplier companies within the automotive sector need to establish an information security management system (ISMS) in order to meet the requirements of their customers. The role of TISAX® as evidence thereof is becoming more and more important here in order to obtain further orders and to prevent getting delisted.

 

First you register online as a TISAX® participant on the ENX platform. The actual assessment will come after that, and finally you will obtain the TISAX® label after passing the examination. The audit process is based on audit objectives, scopes, areas of application, and locations. As a rule, your customer company which wants you to have a TISAX® label will determine the audit objective. For instance, the protection of prototype parts and components might constitute an audit objective.

 

PeRoBa supported a medium-sized company successfully in introducing TISAX®. We gave advice and support to this machine manufacturer from the automotive subsupplier industry for approximately one year. Our motto was about establishing »as many additional regulatory measures as necessary and as few additional regulatory measures as possible« for this process, and our approach paid off. Our customer passed the assessment at the very first attempt without any deviations. The certification auditor confirmed that only very few companies managed to succeed in this manner and especially so the first time around. Our client was delighted about that and especially about obtaining their TISAX® label.

 

We will be very happy to support you in introducing TISAX®, and we look forward to hearing from you.

Remote audit solution from PeRoBa Unternehmensberatung GmbH

The iVision® software of PeRoBa Unternehmensberatung (Management Consultancy) GmbH (LLC) from Munich makes it possible to perform the entire auditing process – which means more than just the use of an existing communication software – from afar.

Audits are continually on the rise within companies, and that entails higher efforts on the part of coworkers and auditors, and it also leads to additional costs. Dr. Roland Scherb from Baldham near Munich has developed an innovative solution together with his management consultancy, PeRoBa in order to make sure that auditing processes will remain as easy and inexpensive as possible.

Remote Audit publication:

Target group:

The auditing topic is becoming more and more important both for auditees and audit initiators. That is also due to legal and regulatory requirements, among other things.

The requirements based on different standards constitute supplements to that. They are mainly based on DIN EN ISO 9001:2015, which gets relatively quickly supplemented by IATF/16949 right up to 14001:2015 on environmental protection.

Remote auditing solutions may very well gain more significance, especially when it comes down to the areas of safety, security, and data privacy, for instance pursuant to ISO 27001.

The target group for remote audits is varied. There are different possibilities and scenarios for actually applying them. Often times, the expression “auditing tourism” gets used at the premises of suppliers, which means that audits are taking place almost weekly over there. Efforts at suppliers’ premises can be significantly reduced through remote audits.

They will also provide assistance when, for instance, a specialist needs to participate during part of an audit. In this manner, the entire traveling time to the auditing location and back can be saved, and complete participation in the audit is no longer necessary either, which entails further savings.

Remote audits may also be used during customary control audits, and the expenditure of time is not as intense as during a complete audit either, especially due to the traveling time saved.

Remote audits based on the iVision® software can be used in all the aforementioned cases, and they may be utilized in plenty of sectors and industries as well. At present, the main clients hail from the automotive & industrial sectors, from logistics & transportation, pharma & medicine as well as from skilled crafts and trades as well as from services. The software is excellently suitable for small and medium-sized companies in particular. It can be used on all commercially available smartphones and tablets. In areas where the parties to be audited need both hands, e.g. in manufacturing and logistics, the iVision® software may be utilized with the aid of data glasses.

Whitepaper Remote Audit:

-Download- for free

Features:

iVision® Remote Audit is a software solution for performing audits pursuant to DIN EN ISO 19011. It may be integrated in existing IT landscapes via smartphone / tablet cameras.

iVision Audit is a remote auditing solution that makes for a new basis for conducting audits.  The auditor or the specialist performs the audit on their computer at the location where they are based. It needs to be agreed in advance whether a co-auditor is used on-site or if the auditee deploys an employee as a co-auditor.

Because of the smartphone the co-auditor is wearing, the auditor can likewise hear and see what the co-auditor is hearing and seeing. As a supplement to that, evidence may be created, allocated and matched accordingly based on a checklist that has been uploaded beforehand, and the auditor can give additional information or instructions to the co-auditor.

Auditing evidence may be documented through image and / or video as well as text so that it can be documented in the auditing report afterward. The assessment by the auditor will either take place right away or in the aftermath together with the report creation.

Of course, a respective role and user conception has been put in place for several clients / auditors. Deployment of the software is also feasible while completing utilizing the client’s IT. Data is transmitted and stored in an encrypted manner right up to the optional supplementation of an automated report creation. Following the standard the audit is based on, the system may also be evaluated as another optional functionality. 

The coverage ratio of the auditing scope is taken as the basis for that and assessed in an automated manner based on the evaluation.  

The BVMW online event on April 15, 2021

Dr. Roland Scherb, who is a long-term auditor and the managing director of PeRoBa Unternehmensberatung (Management Consultancy) GmbH (LLC), will show the requirements remote audits necessitate as well as the advantages they can generate based on a practical example.

He will also very clearly demonstrate the limits of the possibilities for their utilization and the accompanying risks, though. After an interesting talk lasting 30 minutes, Dr. Scherb will be around for answering your questions for 15 more minutes.

The BVMW online event is free of charge and addressed to all interested parties.

for a webinar in english please contact us!

Winning factors for the user:

The upvaluation of the audit plan provides an opportunity. The remote audit must be included under the audit plan and provide alternatives right up to a fallback plan in case of any problems and malfunctions.

Furthermore, the utilization of such new technologies brings decisive advantages in terms of time and costs. According to internal studies, clients can lower their costs for a single audit by 60 percent on average through the remote auditing software. The associated reduction of the impact on the environment, meaning the improvement of the eco-balance and the carbon footprint, are correlating positive scale effects.

The remote audit provides auditors who are supposed to conduct audits within crisis areas, be they affected by war, terrorism, or pandemics, likewise with significant opportunities. The flexibility that goes together with performing remote audits may prove advantageous, too. Remote audits will also entail the option of unplanned or unannounced audits if, for example, the authorities have imposed new requirements since they make it possible to check in a live manner and real time whether someone has reliably implemented their directives or not, contrarily to a traditional audit with a certain waiting period during which the auditee might take certain preparations accordingly in order to pass the audit successfully!

In the meantime, the Coronavirus / COVID-19 has been keeping Germany in suspense, too. A state of emergency was declared during the press conference of the Bavarian state government on March 16, 2020 at 10 AM.

We continue to work for you!


Impact on companies

Employees who can work from home now have an advantage over those who need to be released from work or sent into reduced working hours. Companies that hadn’t been that much in “favor” of letting their employees work from home have increasingly been applying this solution during the present situation as well. The advantages for both sides are perfectly obvious.

Certain framework conditions are not to be neglected when it comes down to working from home and accessing the company network. For instance, the legally valid and applicable data privacy regulations must be adhered to, especially if the job involves personal data. In case you have any questions about this issue,

PeRoBa® will be offering a brief check analyzing whether there is immediate need for action. Please get in touch with us at this link: Contact with “Data privacy check” as an indicator on condition that you are interested in that. 


Possible alternatives

PeRoBa® will be supporting companies especially via digital solutions against the backdrop of the restrictions that are going together with this pandemic occurrence. We can do that through our iVision® Smart Remote Audit Solution or through individual webinars on management systems topics and corresponding further training.

See our post on the Efficient and effective implementation of increases in skills and competencies as well as further training through PeRoBa® webinars for an explanation on the issue of webinars.

An option for coping well with the present situation is about obtaining qualifications and / or submitting evidence when that could not be done in a timely manner during day-to-day operations before. If further training regarding management systems is necessary in your company or if your coworkers would like to attend further training on core methods, please contact us over short-term implementation of learning units and seminars we are offering online.

If needed, we will be glad to test performance at the end of the webinar so that certificates can be obtained.


What can we do for you?

OnlineTrainer We would be happy to discuss with you possible digitization concepts which can be implemented quite soon. PeRoBa® also relies on continuous trainings. In this field, we successfully received the TÜV-Süd certification as “Live Online Trainer – TÜV” in October 2019.

The team of PeRoBa® Unternehmensberatung GmbH (Management Consultancy LLC) will be happy to stand by your side if you have any further questions in this context or if you would like any recommendations for action.

Energy management

The term “energy management” is used nowadays in daily life for a broad range of measures and activities from monitoring up to controlling, for example.  

In the 80s, quality management was the first basis for defining standards based on supplementary management methods. The first version of the energy management standard, the DIN EN ISO 9001:1994 was adopted in 1994. It served as the basis of the environmental management system DIN EN ISO 14001. The energy management standard DIN EN ISO 16001:2009 was adopted in 2009 and replaced by the DIN EN ISO 50001 in April 2012.

DIN EN ISO 50001:2018-12

The draft of the revised version of ISO 50001 was published in September 2017. Probably the new version will be published in this year.

The most important changes are, as follows:

ISO 50001 will be converted to a high level structure

  • A risk-based approach will be adopted
  • The corporate environment will be strengthened by the influence of context and of interested parties
  • Targets and their measurement will be focused on
  • A communication strategy will be adopted
  • There won’t be any more energy management officers. In the future, top management will be held accountable. An energy management team will be appointed
  • Energy management is supposed to be continually improved

The current version of the standard, the “DIN EN ISO 50001:2018  can be ordered from the Beuth publishing house.

Best Practice:

SiMon – a practice-oriented solution approach:

 

PeRoBa® Unternehmensberatung (Management Consultancy) GmbH is accompanying the xNet company during the introduction of a quality and energy management system at present.

For example, SiMon

SiMon is a freely programmable control framework of the xNet GmbH, which monitors and controls energy management systems in a smart manner. This software can be used for single-family houses, larger residential facilities, business units or local heating networks. This has already been proven by multiple installations since 2014.

The system is able to collect as many data points as needed in real time. But the great advantage is the integrated self-learning forecast function, which is based on artificial intelligence. Taking into account historic and forecast data, prognoses can be made on the individual needs of the connected consumers, for example when it comes down to energy networks. Thus, optimized cost-effective provision can be made sure of.

Interaction with supplementary modules, like, for example, a calculation of the solar position or the weather forecast insures that facilities can be operated at maximum efficiency. Thus, such software can be used optimally by end consumers, network operators, planners and energy consultants.  

Therefore, we applied the requirements of the standard in order to provide for a practice-oriented tool and solution. As the new standard is supposed to be published this year, a certification based on the strategic approach of the xNet company is scheduled for the time after the publication of the new standard, among other things. But the requirements of the new standard and the changes that are to be expected had already been implemented and were eventually also audited based on the SiMon software.

Due to different points of view, the issue of auditing is becoming more and more important both for the audited parties and the initiators of the very audits. The reasons for that consist in the increasing numbers of audits, among other things.
The requirements of the different standards are supplementary to that. Mostly, they are based on DIN EN ISO 9001:2015 but they are relatively quickly supplemented by specified trade or industry standards, like, for example, IATF/16949 up to standard 14001:2015 on environmental protection.
Alternative auditing solutions can gain significance especially in the ecological department for life cycle assessments according to ISO 14040. The following briefly depicted scenarios are referred to time and again:

  • Auditing tourism: A supplier is audited almost every week.
  • A specialist is needed for an audit and must make the entire amount of time for the journey to the destination and the return as well as for participation in the complete audit despite their limited participation assignment.
  • Controlling audits need to be performed. The time requirements for these are not as intense as for complete audits but the efforts including traveling time are identical nonetheless.
  • For an audit abroad lasting 2-3 days, the auditor respectively the auditing team will be under way for an entire week including the journey to the destination and the return.
  • And many things more.

If you consider that “solely” one of these points applies to your situation, the utilization of our solution can help you to a considerable extent yet. This is especially so as the new ISO 19011:2018 already makes reference to remote audits and states that they are supposed to be adequate and well-balanced taking into account risks and chances.

iVision® – a brand of PeRoBa® Unternehmensberatung (Management Consultancy) GmbH (LLC)

The iVision Audit is a remote audit solution which provides a new basis for the performance of audits. The auditor or the respective expert conducts the audit on their home computer. It needs to be agreed in advance whether a co-auditor will be used on-site or whether the audited company will deploy a coworker as a co-auditor.
The co-auditor will be wearing data glasses through which the auditor will be able to see and hear exactly what the co-auditor will be hearing and seeing on-site. As a supplement to that, the auditor can supply additional information or instructions to the co-auditor via augmented reality.
Audit evidence can then be documented by means of photos and / or videos in order for them to be recorded in the subsequent audit report. The auditor can either assess the entire situation and the proof right away or later while creating the report.
Of course, corresponding conceptions with regard to different roles and users will be on file when it comes down to several clients / auditors. Data will be transmitted and stored in an encrypted manner, which will also hold true up to supplements to automated report creation. As another optional functionality, the system can be evaluated based on the audit and the respective underlying standards.
For that, the coverage rate of the audit scope will be taken as a basis and assessed in an automated manner based on the evaluation. Clients of PeRoBa Unternehmensberatung (Management Consultancy) GmbH (LLC) already know this system from our audit reports.
Example for the application of iVision®
I would like to express my gratitude to Mr. Pfeifle CEO and his coworkers from the CTP GmbH (LLC) company in whose rooms we could film the iVision® Audit application.

DIN EN ISO 19011:2018
Guidelines on auditing management systems – Process-oriented auditing

The new ISO 19011:2018 standard was published in July 2018. The German version DIN EN ISO 19011:2018 appeared in October 2018.

ISO 19011 provides instructions on managing and directing an audit program, on planning and performing a management system audit as well as on the competence and assessment of an auditor / audit manager and an audit team.

The structure and new contents of DIN EN ISO 19011:2018

First, it should be noted that the standard doesn’t follow the so-called high level structure, meaning the structure with 10 chapters analogously to ISO 9001. The standard continues to have 8 chapters.

The chapters are still, as follows:

▪              Passage 1            Scope
▪              Passage 2            Normative references (none)
▪              Passage 3            Terms and definitions
▪              Passage 4            Principles of auditing
▪              Passage 5            Managing an audit program
▪              Passage 6            Conducting a management system audit
▪              Passage 7            Competence and evaluation of management systems auditors and of audit teams
▪              Annex A provides additional guidance for auditors on planning and conducting audits.

Auditing risks and chances

In the chapter on principles of auditing, this passage has been supplemented by a new demand for a “risk-based approach”, which stretches right through the entire guidelines.

The chapter on the “audit program“ was structured in a new way and supplementary instructions with regard to risks were included. The audit program is more strongly connected to the strategic focus of the company. Furthermore, the requirements from DIN EN ISO 9001 like, consideration of the context of the organization, of identified risks and chances and the objectives of the organization are expanded.

The audit program is supplemented by instructions on management, especially of existing risks and on the performance of audits with regard to digital media. PeRoBa® auditors have been using data glasses, so-called smart glasses for audits for quite some time. This is supposed to serve the reduction of audit expenditures during follow up audits or the involvement of specialists.

In passage 5, the Plan – Do – Check – Act cycle by Deming is presented. Likewise, the coordination of audit activities is dealt with.
In Annex A, there are supplementary explanations, like, for instance, on the following:

  • The principle of the process approach to auditing
  • The term „Professional judgment“ is new
  • Auditing compliance regulations
  • Auditing leadership and commitment
  • Auditing integrated management systems
  • Audit of supply chain
  • Auditing virtual activities and locations

iVision® – Smart Solutions by PeRoBa® Unternehmensberatung GmbH

The performance of audits in highly complex surroundings becomes more and more of a challenge. Especially during remote audits, the utilization of new technologies can be an option for reducing expenditures and achieving objectives in a more efficient manner.

With the aid of the iVision® Audit Solution, an innovative technology, it is possible for us to reduce efforts for remote audits drastically. A coworker of the company is provided with our iVision® software including data glasses.

For example, an auditor is able to see the same things the coworker sees on-site as well by means of this technology. During this, the auditor could also be based on the other side of the world. Communication occurs likewise through data glasses. The auditor can communicate with the coworker on-site and give them instructions. This coworker performs the audit personally “on-site” instead of the auditor. That approach can be especially very helpful for involving audit specialists whose expert competence is solely required for a limited period of time.

Furthermore, the auditor can provide the viewing field of the coworker with visual information, clues and supplements. Thus, for example, an area the auditor wants to check out more precisely can be marked.

Due to the integration into the IT system, an automatically generated audit report can be created out of this connection and the auditor can further edit and process this auditing report within a very short time.

Conclusion

Requirements on auditors are more specified. The issues of knowledge, competence and skills all around the specialist topic of “internal audits” including the planning and performance of audits and follow-up activities are emphasized. Moreover, qualities like process knowledge, handling new media safely, confidence when it comes down to methods and reliable applications of professional judgment are required.

Personal demeanor, radiance and charisma as well as their direct contact to experts, executives and top management are supplementary requirements for auditors so that they can act as ambassadors for the management system. Besides, they need persuasiveness and a wealth of ideas on further developing the management system.

Performing audits in highly complex surroundings is becoming more and more of a challenge. Especially with respect to remote audits, the utilization of new technologies can be a path to reducing efforts and achieving one’s aims more efficiently. The auditors from PeRoBa have also been using data glasses, so-called smart glasses for performing audits for quite some time.

iVision® – Remote audits or respectively audits 4.0

With the support of this new and innovative technology, it is possible for us to reduce efforts while conducting remote audits tremendously. An employee of the respective company is then provided with our iVision® software and data glasses.
For example, an auditor is able to see the same things the coworker sees on-site with the aid of this technology. The auditor can actually be located on the other side of the world as well. Communication occurs also through the data glasses. The auditor can communicate with the employee on-site and give them instructions. This coworker performs the audit personally “on-site” instead of the auditor.
Besides, it is possible for the auditor to display visual hints and info and supplementations to the employee. For example, an area the auditor wants to inspect more precisely can be highlighted this way.
Out of this connection, proper integration with our IT system can create an audit report which is generated in an automated manner and which the auditor can further process and complete within an extremely short time.

The purpose of the 7 quality tools

Errors and data can be collected, reasons for errors can be determined and investigated and errors can be prevented and improvements can be made sure by the 7 quality tools. These so-called 7 quality tools were originally put together by Ishikawa for use in quality circles.

The 7 quality tools are simple and efficient tools which will lead to a high degree of efficacy if they are used precisely.

An overview of the 7 quality tools

A short description of the 7 quality tools comes next.

Error collection list (also referred to as data collection sheet)

The easiest variety of this consists of a piece of paper with handwritten records on the systematic detection and depiction of different main errors.

Error collection list

Histogram

Data are put in order depending on the respective frequency of e.g., their occurrence over time. A histogram (a bar chart) is the graphical depiction of the frequency distribution of a quantity of data which were summarized. The depiction helps to classify individual results among a group of the same result or to determine the area where an individual result is expected. Mean values and distributions constitute important extensions of such histograms. The histogram is the basis of further methods like a superimposed bell-shaped curve; the normal distribution.
Histogram

Pareto

The Pareto depiction is another quality tool. It is a vertical bar chart for the graphical depiction of the reasons for problems. Influences can be arranged here depending on their significance. Important occurrences can be separated from irrelevant ones through the Pareto diagram. Other designations for this are 80-20 distribution or ABC analysis. This tool helps to detect the main reasons better and to process them efficiently.

Cause-and-effect diagram, Ishikawa diagram or Fishbone diagram

Reasons for the development of problems can be classified and analyzed through a combination of the 5 Ms (machines, methods, materials, man, mission / Mother Nature) or the 7 Ms (machines, methods, materials, man, mission / Mother Nature, measurements, management). That will clarify if the problems respectively the errors might have several reasons which are frequently interconnected. Fishbone

Stratification

This is about separating and stratifying data from different sources. Different data are collected in order for them to be treated based on facts.
This is supposed to identify root causes so that improvement measures can be managed.
In many depictions, the method is referred to as brainstorming instead of stratification. Brainstorming is a basic entrance-level technique for looking for possible reasons for problems together in a group of people.

Correlation diagram

This is the graphical depiction of a correlation between two measured values. Correlations, connections, regularities and tendencies can be read off here.

Correlation diagram

Control chart, quality control chart

This is an easy quality tool in order to check whether, e.g., a process operates within the tolerance limits and to make sure that it does. The results can be depicted graphically with the aid of the control chart. Furthermore, this tool is excellent for explaining and setting out the standard requirements from chapter 8.1 on “controlled conditions”. More information on that will be posted in one of the next publications.

The 7 Quality Tools (Q7, QM Tools)

What are the 7 Quality Tools (Q7)?

The 7 Quality Tools (abbreviated as Q7, QM Tools) are a collection of proven methods for quality assurance. With them, users can document errors in a strongly targeted manner and collect data, which can be used for avoiding these very mistakes in the future. The methods had already been compiled by Japanese chemist Ishikawa Kaoru in 1943 but they have not lost any of their relevance up to now.

What methods do the 7 Quality Tools include?

The Q7 consist of error collection lists (also data collection sheet), histograms, Pareto charts, Ishikawa diagrams (cause-and-effect diagrams), stratification (colloquially referred to as brainstorming), correlation diagrams and control charts.

What are the M7 (7 Management Tools)?

In contrast to the analytical and quantitative methods of the Q7, the 7 Management Tools (M7) provide a collection of tools which make it possible to structure and analyze verbal information. To present it in a simplified manner, problem solving occurs here through a process of identifying the problem, finding the solution and implementing the solution.

What other QM Tools are there on top of the Q7?

Aside from the classic Q7, FMEA (Failure Mode and Effects Analysis), PPAP (Production Part Approval Process), QFD (Quality Function Deployment) as well as SPC (Statistical Process Control) are utilized most often in practice.

Enhance your competences and implement further training efficiently in real terms with PeRoBa webinars
The PeRoBa® Unternehmensberatung GmbH (Management Consultancy) has been using webinars on a continual basis since the middle of 2016 in order to impart topics within companies. Due to the increasing demand, we have decided to integrate this area into our web presence as well.

What is a webinar?
According to a Wikipedia definition, the term means the following:
“A webinar or a web seminar is a seminar that is held via the World Wide Web. The term “webinar” is a neologism and a portmanteau consisting of the terms “web” (because of “World Wide Web”) and “seminar”. The term has been registered as a word mark with the German Patent and Trademark Office since 2003.”
For PeRoBa®, a webinar is an interactive audio-visual online training course which explains a special and time-limited topic to a group of 14 persons at maximum. This is supposed to make for sustainable learning success and to provide options for discussions with every single person who actually takes part in it. Participants may log in to our webinar at a specific and scheduled point in time.
They may watch the webinar from any place and on any device they want to.

What sorts of webinars have been successfully implemented thus far?
Among other things, PeRoBa® has conducted webinars on the following topics up to now:

  • FMEA harmonization, as of the VDA draft dated 2018
  • Auditing according to the “new” IATF
  • The utilization of new technologies in the area of quality management (explained by taking the example of the new iVision®-Audit)
  • The new ISO 19011, implementing audits efficiently
  • Implementing ISO 9001:2015 efficiently (explained based on examples)
  • The VDA draft on the 8D method and the most important modifications
  • And other topics from the QM area…

What sorts of requirements ought to be met?
The efforts on the part of the participants are downright minor. Technical surroundings, meaning a computer or tablet, an internet connection and a quiet room are required for taking part in such training.
Different sorts of further training webinars, like, for example, those using the “flipped classroom” method can be selected as supplements to that. For purposes of explanation, we are glad to refer to the PeRoBa webinar video published here.
The team of the PeRoBa® Unternehmensberatung GmbH (Management Consultancy) will be happy to stand by your side if you have any further questions in this context or if you would like to get recommendations for taking action.
